Over the past week we’ve announced a host of entirely new simulcasts and the best news is that each one is free, in HD, and available right after releasing in Japan. No sign-up required!
If you’ve ever considered a career in the anime business, Girlish Number is the perfect series for you. It delves deep into the seiyu (or voice acting) business as one young woman tries to make a name for herself!
College student Chitose Karasuma is determined not to do boring things as she enters the adult world. To this end, this bad-mannered beauty barges into a facility that trains would-be voice actors and actresses, somehow landing a job at “Number One Produce,” a seiyu agency managed by her older brother, Gojo. In Chitose’s mind, she’s poised for greatness, but finds herself at a loss when she continues to only get minor roles. As she clashes with other girls in the agency, including a cunning airhead and a girl with a Kansai accent, Chitose is about to learn that there’s more to succeeding in this competitive industry than she imagined.
Even though our final Simulcast for the 2016 Fall Season has been announced, you should still stick around for more exciting announcements throughout the year as we’re always licensing new shows in different territories!
